We've received your survey results, and the winning day and time for the future Reserve 101 trainings are Monday afternoons between 12 pm and 3 pm. Approximately 42% of respondents chose Monday and early afternoons as the best time to attend our online Zoom sessions. With that in mind, we will hold our next Reserve 101 Session on Monday, June 1st, from 12 - 2 pm, with a Reserve Q & A session afterward from 2 - 3 pm. Please join us for one or both sessions!
A few Friendly Reserve Reminders for June:
Day(s) Off Pick-Up (Monthly Transition)
- If a flight attendant is transitioning from line holder to reserve and has a day(s) off at the beginning of the reserve month. The Flight attendant can exercise their option under Section (8.L) and (8.M) of the JCBA for picking up trips on reserve days off. This option may be utilized, starting on the 18th of the month at 1700 during the mutual window. A call must be placed to scheduling in advance of the pick-up. Scheduling has to manually insert a release code for the flight attendant to pick-up. Day(s) off for the reserve month must begin on the first day of the bid month to utilize this provision. Open time pick-up may be utilized once a month per Section (7.S.4.) for pick-up on reserve day(s) off.
Restoring Plus (+) Day(s)
- If the pre-designated restorable day(s) fall within your vacation or creates a conflict/legality with another item on that day in your schedule (24/7, 1-in-7, short block), you have an option to designate a different reserve day(s) of availability to be restored other than published in the bid packet. Please check the Vacation/Conflict box on the restoration form to indicate your alternative selection of restorable day(s). The day(s) chosen to be restored must also not create a conflict or legality. Be very specific in your Help Desk/Hub ticket when asking to restore days. Let them know which of the restorable (+ day(s) you would like restored, or if you would like all 4 of your days restored. Also, if you have a restorable day(s) within your vacation or that creates a conflict, like described above, please indicate on the restoration form which alternate day(s) you would like restored in its place. Missing details in the Help Desk/Hub form will cause them to kick back your request and cause issues. Please note, a block of less than three consecutive days on reserve touching the last day of the new bid month is not considered a short block.
Trading Plus (+) Day(s)
- Please keep in mind while trading reserve day(s). All plus (+) day(s) that are traded cannot be restored. The restorable designation is tied to the specific location in the schedule and not the OFF day itself. Said another way, you cannot trade a restorable day until the day is restored. An OFF day designated as restorable (+) that is traded from its original location to elsewhere in the schedule will no longer be a restorable day.
